ROOTED IN SERVICE AND DEDICATION TO CUSTOMERS
Raynor Garage Doors of Kansas City opened for business in 1992. However, our story begins long before that and is rooted in service and dedication to our customers since 1968.
The background of our inception starts first with a young man who had nothing to start out with except dreams of creating a new life, a strong set of values, and a solid work ethic that he had learned growing up. Dave Guthrie started his door career working for Overhead Door Company in Des Moines, Iowa, while in high school. He quickly learned the garage door industry, and after returning from his service in the United States Navy, became an installer for Adams Door Company in Bettendorf, Iowa. After several years in this location he transferred, in 1980, to a brand new Adams Door location in Des Moines, Iowa, after realizing the growth potential of the area. In 1992, Raynor Garage Doors of Kansas City was born and he became a partner and eventually sole owner with his wife of 40 years, Sheila. She and Dave have been working alongside each other since 1983.
Raynor Kansas City truly is a family-owned and operated company. In 1994, Dave and Sheila’s son Mike joined the business and he now serves as the Company’s Director of Sales and Marketing. Their daughter Kristy serves in the business, as well. Today, our highly skilled team of experienced associates stands ready to serve you. The company remains family-owned and the owners actively manage the business on a daily basis.
REMAINING TRUE TO GUIDING PRINCIPLES
Thanks to foresight, dedicated associates, the best suppliers in the industry, the loyal support of customers through the years, and most of all God’s goodness, we have grown into a thriving organization. Much has changed over the years, but our guiding principles of integrity, service and value have stayed the same, and we believe they will guide us well as we embrace the future.
